“My back pain began at work and it gradually got worse. After a while, I wasn’t able to do anything anymore. I was in pain all the time. I tried massage therapy, chiropractic care, and cortisone injections, but nothing helped.
I saw Dr. Spiel and when he explained that I was a good candidate for lumbar fusion, I knew there was finally an answer for my pain. Dr. Spiel and Dr. Pflum thoroughly went over the details of the procedure and made me feel very comfortable about it.
A few days after my surgery, my life was back to normal. I’m now pain free and I feel happy again.”
“My back pain started after I stumbled and fell down, and it kept getting worse and worse. The pain was unbelievable and there was no relief. None.
I went to see other doctors and they told me they couldn’t find anything skeletally wrong. Dr. Spiel and Dr. Pflum were able to tell where my pain was just from reading the X-rays. It was amazing.
When I was initially told about the spinal fusion, I was scared to death, but I knew I had to do something because the pain was non-stop. Within the first month after the surgery, I had a half a dozen or so days when I was literally pain free. Now I am able to do a lot more and I can now get out a lot more. Prior to meeting Dr. Spiel and Dr. Pflum, I never thought it would happen again.”
